I went to a Takashi Murakami exhibit in Paris this summer, and because I saw a lot of Japanese cartoons, I was intrigued. I went home and looked up a little about Takashi Murakami, and here’s what I found most interesting about him:

Even though he had seen many different types of art, and had actually trained in Japanese fine art, he had grown up to Japanese cartoons. That’s what he likes painting and sculpting. He actually founded a postmodern movement called Superflat.

Superflat? What’s that? Superflat is a movement where Japanese cartoons, pop culture, and fine art are combined into one glorious and magnificent canvas.

What’s pop culture? Pop culture is anything that is popular.

Check this out and see what you think of this kind of art!
